The Lamborghini Gallardo is a fantastic, well-executed supercar for the street. Like most cars in this sector, it is still impractical in many regards, but nowhere near to the degree of the Murcielago. Overall though, it can be quite useable as a second car, that you drive for fun on nice days, because it is practical enough for most basic tasks, and a lot more fun than your other car would be.

Since the explosion of the SUV market in the mid-1990s, many different companies have touted various forms of vehicles designed to take the driver where they please, rocks and mud be damned. Continue reading 4WD vs. AWD: What’s the difference?
The way to describe the Bentley Continental is “solid”. The car is extremely overbuilt and it has such a feel of presence and occasion to it on the road. It is extremely refined and relaxed about everything it does whether you are just cruising or charging full steam ahead. The way it retains this laid back feel in all situations really sets it apart from any other car I have experienced. The Continental is a serious Grand Touring car to be sure.

This past weekend, I became a man in terms of driving. Continue reading Test Driven: 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe
Cadillac is working on a large sedan they are calling the XTS. It is to replace both the STS and DTS, and if GM is smart they will aim to make a legitmate flagship sedan of global standard like those offered from Mercedes, Audi, BMW, Jaguar, and Lexus. Continue reading Cadillac XTS: “Standard of the world”? Doesn’t seem so.
Although GM’s turnaround has been the work of all four of its brands, Buick is the one that seems to look the most different than its previous self. With the loss of Oldsmobile and Pontiac over the past 10 years, Buick is now the mid-level brand of the family, which is an extremely difficult position to be in during this time, as Cadillac struggles to move upmarket and its closest competitor, Mercury, is finally put to bed by Ford. Continue reading Dear Buick: I see what you did there.
In order to discuss this question we must first have a definition of “art” itself. The definition of art is largely personal will vary between individuals to some degree to be sure. There is some consensus though. “Art” consists of a deliberate action that is meant to evoke an emotional or sensual response, or meant to convey a message from the creator. It is a medium with which people may express themselves, and can really be anything at all. The factors defining “art” exist more in the reasons for doing something than the actual tangible result of such an action. This is because the motivation of the artist is what will ultimately determine the potency of their work’s effects on others. Continue reading Art of the Automobile: Can cars be “art”?

Understeer: the front of the car loses grip and the car will not seem to be able to turn enough.
Oversteer: the rear of the car loses grip and the car fishtails or will spin around. It will turn too much. Continue reading Cars 101: “Understeer” vs “Oversteer”
Since when did compact cars become so interesting? Back in 2009, if you wanted something good in the compact class, you bought a Honda Civic or Volkswagen Jetta, and no one was the wiser. But now, other brands have stepped in, and the pickings are, evidently, worth a serious look. On a random day in April, I decided to drive three new compact cars, all of which are significant in their own right. Continue reading Test Driven COMPARISION: 2012 Ford Focus SE Sport vs. 2011 Mazda3s Sport vs. 2011 Hyundai Elantra GLS
